How My Tech Quest was born?

Hi, my name is Steve Yu, the owner of My Tech Quest dot com. I began my blogging life back in February 2007 (when I was still studying in a local University in Malaysia) on a free Blogger platform.

My very first blog talked about Make Money Online(MMO). But why chose MMO? Because I got so inspired with this topic as there were in fact a lot of such blogs around at that time. I thought I could make some money here and there at the end of the day.

Somehow, it didn’t take long for me to realize that my how-to-make-money-online blog venture was totally a FAILURE! If I could really make money online, I could have purchase a self-hosted blog then, right? After a few months later, I’ve decided to close down my so-called “Make Money Online Blog” for good. Now, every time when I recalled on how I can thought of blogging on MMO, plus on a FREE (yes, FREE!) blogger platform, I cannot stop laughing at myself. Yes, laughing at my stupidity. Lol!!! 🙂

Then on November 2007, my desire to blog again pop up in my mind. I was on a semester break, a b-o-r-i-n-g semester break. I told myself, making another blog won’t do any harm to me and this time, I promised myself no to blog about MMO again! So my second blog was born at the end of November 2007 (URL : steveyu85.blogspot.com ), this time it was a personal blog, talking only about my personal life plus no more making money online stuff.

After a while, besides personal stuff, I began to talk about gadgets, software and technology related stuff on my blog. Yes, I am passionate about technology stuffs and I study IT for my degree (See it’s important to blog about stuffs that you’re passionate about) and that was when My Tech Quest was born. Don’t ask how I got this (funny) name, it was a long story. Finally, on March 24 2008, this blog was successfully migrated to self-hosted WordPress blog. I’m glad that with the decision I’ve made.

And the rest, as they say, is history.
